NBA Comparison: Carlos Rogers

Strengths: Macklin's most attractive strength surrounds his physical tools, where at 6'9 243 lbs, he possesses a 7'4 wingspan and 9'1 standing reach ... He's a solid athlete whose explosiveness allows him to do damage around the hoop... Moves well on both sides of the ball... Offensively, his biggest strength is his over the left shoulder baby hook when he establishes deep positioning on the interior... Macklin spends the majority of his time in the paint, where he's improved his post game in terms of efficiency, but not in terms of diversity... Defensively he has potential to be an effective post defender with his mobility, strength and length...

Weaknesses: His glaring weakness is his non-existent midrange game ... Facing the basket is not in his repertoire, nor does it look to be in his near future ...One-dimensional offensively, without an array of post moves or an outside game... shot 45% from line... only 2.8 free throw attempts per game, illustrating his inability to force his defender out of position ... His rebounding numbers were alarmingly low, especially on the defensive glass at only 3.2 per game... Could be a liability defending away from the basket... Already 24 years old, which will deflate his stock as an NBA prospect considering his limited offensive game ...

Overall: Was a top 10 recruit coming out of high school ... Macklin transfered to Florida after 2 years at Georgetown... Physically he fits the mold of an NBA power forward, but at 24 years old and little polish to his game, replacing someone in a rotation seems unlikely at this point...
